Keeping their marriage strong in showbiz where rumors and intrigues are inevitable is a feat that Annabelle Rama and Eddie Gutierrez must be proud of. How did their love story begin? Annabelle shared the most amusing details in an episode of Gandang Gabi Vice!
In this throwback video, Annabelle boldly owned up to making the first move. She was the one who pursued Eddie by constant visits to his shoots, giving him gifts, and even using “gayuma” or love potion. It took her years before bagging Eddie’s heart.
She called herself a “sugar mommy for a time,” saying she loved to gift Eddie with expensive items like luxury cars when they were young. “Tapos kung sinu-sinong babae ang sinasakay niya kaya binabawi ko. Sabi niya, ‘Hindi ko naman hiningi ‘yan.’ Eh, ‘di binawi ko. Pero maya-maya onti, ibibigay ko ulit,” she told Vice Ganda.
But she clarified that Eddie never asked for material gifts. She would just willingly give (now we know her love language). Besides, she rarely dates guys who don’t have the money. There was a time when she dated an actor who had the looks and fame but Annabelle didn’t like him asking for gifts and money. She realized she’d rather be the one spoiled in the relationship or at least find a guy less demanding.
Annabelle admitted to having a lot of boyfriends, maybe more than ten, in the past. She was also the jealous type to the point of getting physical with other girls. “Noong araw, tingnan mo lang si Eddie nagagalit na ako, nananampal ako agad. Para akong luka-luka noong araw.” Looking back, Annabelle said she regrets being too jealous.
